The song was "Shakedown Street" promoting their new album of the same name with an initial release on November 15, 1978 with new label. What really made it special was the fact that The New Riders of the Purple Sage - (the opening band) joined the Dead on stage in closing the show just before their trip to Egypt in a few days.
Wow..., that a long strange trip it was.
I really wish someone can upload the missing second encore song and complete the show.
Subject: My First Show
I do remember hearing a story about people falling during or after the show...it put a damper on things. I know alot of people were tripping.
Being that I was only 15, what impressed me was seeing all the people at the show:
Old Hippies and Cosmic Charlies shooting junk, passed out,in what appeared to be a a mire of puke near the end zone on the opposite side from where the band was playing.
"Half Moons" seemed to be all around, along with Nitrous whippits and balloons.
Getting turned on a smoking up near the front of the stage with really nice people just groovin and enjoying the show.
After the show I hitched a ride with two Tennessee Jeds in an old '64 or '65 Impala. It seemed like forever to get out of the area. They had blonde hair down to their hips and yes, they were from Tennessee!~
`This was my first show. For the next 10 years I would go to shows. Little did I know, what a long, strange trip it was going to be.
Subject: Long Night into day
I remember getting tired of the crazy all night gate people, and wandering the lot and stadium alone in an exhausted stupor before the Dead came on. I waded out onto the floor and stumbled across some good friends from home just as Bill Gram introduced the band and declared that "we are all exactly where we want to be"... weired and perfect.
This was my second show. I wanted to stow away in an equipment trunk when the Bobby announced that the next stop was going to be Egypt!

Except for Jerry's vocals. I can't believe I'm the only one who hears him struggling.
He whispers at times I think because he can't make the note. And he's flat on Jack Straw, or his range seems to have disappeared all together.
Subject: Late Summertime Good Times
Just listen to the Eyes. Garcia's sly, carefree,
jaunty, easygoing solos carefully countered by Weir's cowboy-jazz licks and Lesh's thoughtful,arch base lines framing it all.
You listen to this stuff and once again life is
like a song again!
Subject: Fairly decent audience recording.
And I have no idea what stebreatty is talking about. This is a great show and as far I'm concerned they didn't put on a single poor performance '78. Those didn't start until '83 - '84 and '92 - '95. Steve Rolfe is a master taper and these Sony mics always sound great to my ears. They might even be my favorite out of all the different mics I've heard. If you like auds then grab this one - you won't be sorry.
